i trust all IPMC members: it's not a question of trust but of release
management experience and energy.

also, using RAT makes a huge difference. IPMCers would don't use RAT
find it really hard to check large codebases they haven't helped to
develop. the problem is that RAT is incomplete (and i'm not finding
the cycles right now to push RAT to where it needs to go) and
undocumented so it's much easier for me to use than anyone else.

(BTW if anyone wants to help out on RAT, it would be really appreciated :-)

good friday is a holiday here in sunny bradford so i'm taking a look
at this now (or at least starting to work on the tools i need). i
expect to have the review completed today.
